Riverdale Girls Lacrosse’s new head coach, Michelle Williamson, is optimistic about her team’s chances for 2016. “We’ve done a lot of conditioning work off-season and the girls have really stepped up to learn the game and work on their individual skills,” she says. “It’s a foundation year, so we will be laying the groundwork for the team’s future.” Coach Williamson brings new ideas on offense and defense and will be moving the Lady Raiders in a direction that will be more consistent with lacrosse as it’s played by the better programs in Florida and elsewhere.
“We have a bunch of new girls, freshman and sophomores, who came out to try a sport they’ve never even seen before,” says Coach Williamson. “It’s inspiring to see this level of interest–we really want to help these kids succeed. That’s what it’s all about.”
